Mysterious; mesmerizing; magnificent. We have a soft spot for ribbon turquoise, ever since trading the mine owner in a parking lot for a bag of ribbon turquoise stones he had in his glove compartment for a small, but valuable Hopi pot. It was about a year before ribbon turquoise made its appearance in shops or on the internet. "'Not sure if I want to sell these yet, but I'll sure trade you for that Tom Polacca pot if that appeals to 'ya," he said. Hence the Drifter's affinity for the stone began. Here's a striking example of the stone's inherent eye-catching properties. Length is 1 and 5/8th's-inches, while they are .75-inches across at the widest point. Each earring weighs 7.8-grams, or .275-ounces. Hallmarked "Elouise Kee." Free USPS Priority shipping within the U.S.
